Day At University
 Pappu Yadav  
 14 March 2018  

It was another normal day at University. We were standing on the verandah outside our class. And all of a sudden I saw a girl, gosh she was damn pretty.Literally, I stared her for 5 to 6 mins, she noticed me and it became awkward for both of us.We are backbenchers and that too teenager, we have a bad habit of addressing a beautiful girl as " Maal ".That day too one of a friend called me said, " Bhai dekh kya maal h ".That day something got into me and I became furious and replied, " Dubara esa bola toh marunga.The best part was, She heard me say that. " Bhai ki izzat bar gayi larki k nazar m " We stood there for around 90 minutes exchanging smiles. I was like " Yr smile mil rha h matlb ab apna scene bnega.After college I followed her to her house. In between Clge and her house she stopped at 2 places.1) Panipuri wale bhaiya.Girls and Panipuri still a better love story released by our Bollywood nowadays.I too joined her and said to the Panipuri wale bhaiya , " Jis type ka woh kah rahi hai , wesa hi bnaiye ". I don't know if she heard me or not but suddenly she started saying, " Bhaiya aur theeka." And I was like aaj toh lgne wali hai apni. And I swear next morning I realized pyar k chakkr m bhot buri tarah lg gayi.2 ) Recharge shop.As soon as she stopped there I started wondering " Sala jio k zamane m kon recharge krwata h ".I too followed her to the shop and took a recharge of 50 of Airtel. Jio hote hue Airtel m recharge, pyar m kya kya krta hai insaan .Finally, she reached home. That evening again I went to that colony but she was nowhere to be found. I was disappointed. I returned home and started wondering how should I start a conversation. After 4 hours I came up with a plan. I thought of attending a class in her section and would ask her for a pen. " Purana tareeka hai , par hmesa kaam krta hai". As there's a saying Old is Gold.After hours of practice, I was all prepared. I entered the class, sat behind her but felt as if she was ignoring me. And so I dropped my plan and silently moved out of the class after the period was over. I felt bad for a couple of days but then I thought, " Bhai life m chaiye izzat " so I stopped noticing her or looking at herDays passed and I was back to normal. One day I was standing outside her class talking to my friends. And you will be surprised to know what happened next .I caught her clicking my pictures and she was so dumb she didn't even turn the flashlight off . Girls are so smart after all.I was on cloud nine and we started talking. Now we used to meet on a regular basis. It was all going really smoothOne fine evening I asked her out, she agreed.We talked for almost 2 hours and then I suddenly proposed her out of nowhere." Will you be my better half till death do us apart. "She blushed and said, " I am all yours".I was about to kiss her suddenly a voice from the backside," Uth Jah nalayak dophar k 2 baj rahe hai ".It was my Maa.And I realized it was just a beautiful dream.I smiled again And then I said to Maa ," Maa aap toh sapne m bhi kisiko kiss krne nhi deti ".

Think, if we live there, we can see such an outlet at a distance of some mill, from which life seems to be even more beautiful? How many times will we see such reports? No human will answer this Such was the view that was near our distance of exactly 10 km. Succulent, lonely, calm, laugha beach. In the form of the letter 'U' exactly like the English alphabet, it is one of the best beaches of Maharashtra state. The nature around the middle has openly exposed the green-blue color with both hands. These are far from the human point of view, and therefore, these are a hot destination for the holidays. Many beaches in Konkan coast One of the popular beaches is Ladhar Beach. It is also known as "Tamas Tirath" by this holy name.Located in Konkan, 9 km away from Dapoli in Ratnagiri district, Ladar. As soon as you enter Dapoli, you will have to find a place named Keluskar Naka, after going straight from the left side, Dapoli police The station will be seen and the front will be open from the Azad Maidan, after moving from right to left, after going for some time, you will find the building of Dapoli Court, from there also you will have to go straight till the time. You do not find Dapoli police check post, after getting the check post from there, you have to go straight by the way and when you go, you will see the Konkan Agriculture University on your left side, from there it goes through the middle of the thick bushes to the ladders. After traveling by this, you think that these thoughts are coming in between and how far is it? It seems as if the beach is not around till the sea and you They are passing through the forest, but "the fruit of patience is sweet" says, this is the experience of you, when your car comes out of a small way with a small turn and in front of you Lajhar beach is full of giant, beautiful, wonderful ocean and charming eyes.You must tell this thing that there are many places and beaches in the surroundings of the city of Ladarpura too, but if you have come on a vacation for a day or two and take a full time away from everyday life and spend the whole time in silence If you want, take the experience of a beautiful, unoccupied place like the lavish. Experience the nature of it here and become unified, takes away all the burden of body and mind.Ladakh is such a place where despite the state-of-the-art facilities of tourism all have its natural beauty and features still existed.In between these are the mills that are the only ones on the beach. You have such an experience, The whole beach is just for you. The beach is very safe for fun with the tricks. In the meantime, one of the best qualities is that the sand is in red and hence this part of the ocean is "l Sea "where it goes. Because it is too long and clean, it is very fun to swim in the ocean and to move on the shore. You will not believe, but the sand of one end of this long spaced beach is rocky sand. So the other thief's sand is very soft sand. There are forests of coconut trees all around the beach, and for this reason the forest and the other star ocean and the edge in the middle, Here you can see it. At the beach, we can enjoy whatever you like. There is also the presence of a life guard on the beach. After taking the entire experience of the beach, the mind becomes calm and happy. On the side of the sea, sitting on the waves Seeing the taste of your favorite food, taking a hot hot tea, the joy of being lost in this view by standing on the positive waves arising in the mind is another.Good facilities are available for lodging around Lodhghar.Laudhara is a very beautiful and natural variation, refreshing beach. At the time of sunset, these beaches are filled with very eccentric and engaging views and they fall in red color. After this we realize that the nature is so beautiful and the mind is filled with its fullness.With your family and loved ones, be special and spend your moments, or forgetting the moment of youth or forgetting everyone with your friends, you should have such a quiet experience alone, loneliness and sea, there is no other better place than Ladhar beach.

He,who uses humanity to justify His sins.

To help further understand, analyse these.Charles Siebert, “An Elephant Crackup”. The New York Times Magazine. 8th October 2006, 1-19Anupama Rao, “Death of a Kotwal: The Violence of Recognition.” In The Caste Question: Dalits and the Politics of Modern India, Anupama Rao, University of California Press,241-264. Man is in the forever need to make himself advanced and supreme. In a rut to reach the top of his own and exceed others’ capacity, varied levels of living are created. The greedy supreme Man reaches the Elite level, while the other exceptional humans and non-humans fall at the subaltern specie level. This paper argues how when these Elite humans, subject to disruption over the subordinate, find humanity those groups to justify their heinous acts. By attributing and hence destroying affection,empathy, courage and other similar key features to the subalterns, humans try to shift the blame of being the cruel and corrupt over to them. Coexistence of individuals in any group of the living leads to a natural bond of affection and connectivity. Owing to the constant greed of Man to advance, He takes it upon himself, to intervene in the subaltern lifestyle and produce disharmony to reach the top. Siebert in his essay confirms how animals are most comfortable in their natural habitat and admonish any kind of trespassing. He claims that, “Elephants, when left to their own devices, are profoundly social creatures”(5). Their intricately organized community is a symbol of compassion; a common characteristic of the humane. After considering this, the Man gets an instinct to steal such a trait common to him from any specie which is unknown. Upon action, he goes as far as redeveloping their habitats and lifestyle. And hence a sudden challenge of disbalance is created. He indulges in a series of gruesome acts such as hunting, poaching and culling to extract resources off of the non Human, and thereby extracting the humanity off of them. Upon disruption, elephants too rumble in protest. In a maze on who should reach the top, be free and unique, the companionship is lost. Rao expels similar ideas and expresses how exertion of power by the the ones in authority and rule over a minority group renders discontent and division in a unified community. She reflects the incident and writes, “In fact they were dependent on Ambadas. With the entry of the Shiv Sena two years ago , the first seeds of discord were sown.” (252). The community which had recognized representatives and leaders collectively, was now to be in a state of separated opinions because Man in power imposed himself to disturb a tranquil habitat. The police and press, even after submission of members of the Elite party who were thought to be the convicts of Sawane’s murder, the meek humans didn’t settle for the punishment but encouraged further investigation. This act of refusal to admit defeat and crime committed plants seeds in the hearts of the natives from the subaltern to quit their humanity and battle the Human-Monster. Where in both the cases, the Elite Human intervention was out of greed and power, the distortion created rendered the Dalit’s powerless and elephants in pain. In an attempt to make the world rosy for existence where Man leads, he paints the universe with colours of dissatisfaction and disbelief.In the world where survival of the fittest runs parallely across species, when Man subjugates, he also invokes the emotion of liberation. Humans, owing to their intelligence and constant greed for power and knowledge have called up for a battle from many species unlike his. In Siebert’s essay one can witness a history of disturbance caused by man in the world of elephants. He writes, “It is not leaving without making some kind of statement, one to which scientists from a variety of disciplines,including human psychology,are now beginning to pay close attention”(3). In the need to justify his acts of cruelty and show domination, He attributes a sense of bravery and courage to the rogue species but diminishes their struggle infront of himself. While practicing another selfish act, of creating priviledges for self and obscuring others, the human race dissects on the basis of caste. By introducing differentiated humans, Dalits, form the subaltern group which revolts against the Upper castes, the superiors further impose authority over them. Rao realizes this difference and remarks, “However the resilience of everyday practices of stigmatization also conditions Dalits’ continued quest for social justice and dignity”(263). On one hand where social stigmas are created within this segregated society, there is still an ongoing revolt to attain equity with the Upper Caste Humans. When the media, the legislation, the judiciary see the uneasiness of living caused to Dalits and asserts politics into it, the Hindus reward it by calling it a courageous monotonous deed and a part of their lifestyle. Thereby signifying that the atrocities are nothing but a similar humane act which they are bound to deal with. After interfering with these subaltern groups and categorizing their actions as a testimony of the struggle to regain their individuality, the Man belittles their movements and produces the need to explore these species through his eyes of humanity.In order to upgrade their behaviors and functions, the Humans wish to understand other species and create an environment of empathy to gain their trust. This need to gain belief stems from spheres of the subordinate groups when they are disrupted by the Human intervention. Anupama Rao expounds on the Kotwal murder case by sharing the impact created by various findings gathered and reported by institutions. In reality, where the elites formed the face of the state and recognized it as ‘progressive’, they themselves gave birth to caste and encouraged discrimination. Rao expresses the urgent upheaval caused and says, “On September 6, the DIGP and the PCR Cell in Bombay demanded that special police officers be sent to investigate untouchability in the villages mentioned in the Maharashtra Times and Times of India articles” (251). Close investigations were then to be charged as a classic way of repenting the wrong done by the authoritarian humans to create a sense of understanding in the minds of the aggrieved specie. At times in order to make themselves more involved with other species, humans prove themselves to be in the same shoes as others. Siebert after having conversed with Abe reaffirms, ““Elephants are suffering and behaving in the same ways that we recognize in ourselves as a result of violence,”she told me”(8). By recognizing an emotion as strong as violence and equating this feeling in their lifestyle, Humans empathize with the elephants to realize their(elephant’s) individuality in relation to themselves. However the cause and effect of disruption maybe, Man declares self to have dealt with same. After perturbing the non animal’s to the animal’s peaceful lifestyle,empathy shown in relation to their own makes up a successful defensive measure against the barbarism caused.In this ever evolving cosmos, peaceful survival of different species of living beings has taken a backseat. Where species apart from the Elite race unknowingly reflect traits of humanity, Man has learned to extract these subalterns away from traits personal to his. To achieve this, he adopts a series of tasks of ignorance, intervention, destruction and further violence which make the subaltern species ultimately either give in to acceptance or lose their space of existence on this planet. At the summit of this volcano still, Man stands waving his flag of repentance and justification. He started the war and never lets anyone contest or win. With others’ hands tied and his limbs free, the monstrous volcano of humanity erupts. Now he waves the flag for peace.

The smooth flow of words makes the narrative not only easy but engrossing too. The characters be they the protagonists or the supporting souls, are well articulated, thus making it easy for the reader to relate to them, their views, their actions and reactions. In fact one can easily don their shoes and live the story without feeling ill at ease/ appearing odd. Each one of them contributes to taking the story forward without a hitch, without a hurdle. The author’s mastery over the language is evident from the terms he has used and the vivid description of events that unfold in the pages of the book. To write is an art, to keep the reader spellbound and yearning for more is magic. The book brings out sibling love at its best and also addresses certain social issues in subtle yet powerful strokes. This book deals with every aspect of struggles a women undergone during the ancient time and also serves a great social message about eunuch community. There are a few typos and one or two places where the author has made contradictory usages that need to be rectified. My favorite protagonist of this story is Maharani Meeramani. The book has worth to be carried and flaunt because it has got a magical touch of love which can be done in a single sitting.A wonderful read, one I’ll strongly recommend to all book lovers. I’m sure that those who don’t like the historical friction will not get disappointed after reading the book.Overall Ratings- 4/5 StarsAbout the AuthorMeenakshi was born on December 27, 1972, in New Delhi.

Interview With Revathi Raj Iyer
 Ayushi A Nair  
 21 June 2018  

Revathi Raj Iyer is a freelance writer, book reviewer, company director, service volunteer and yoga/fitness enthusiast. Professionally qualified as Company Secretary (India & New Zealand) with legal background, she has worked in the corporate field for over a decade. Bombay is her hometown and Baroda her abode after marriage. When she moved to Fiji Islands, she bid adieu to a rewarding career with a multinational to become a full time mum and pursue her twin passions, yoga and writing. She worked as lecturer of Laws at the University of Fiji. Living between NZ and Fiji, she pursued writing and yoga training and continues her passion after moving to India. She lives in Ahmedabad, India and has completed her next book which is a collection of short stories. Her dream is to write books for children.A couple of easy questions to begin with…First off,  What inspired you to write “My Friendship with Yoga”?Physical activity was dominant in my life right from an early age, as a trained classical dancer, which continued until my late twenties. Thereafter it took a back seat, when I became engrossed with my career together with being hands-on mum to a lovely little daughter alongside other demands that needed my attention. However, things changed when we moved to Fiji Islands, and I got back into fitness with intense aerobics and strength training. As destiny would have it, a disciple of Yogacharya BKS Iyengar was deputed to Fiji to introduce this ancient tradition to the people of Fiji. Yoga was at my door step and I embraced it with heartfelt love. I started writing my yoga journal. One fine day, I decided to give a formal structure to my jottings to reach out to a wider audience. As I wrote the book I had no idea of the publishing process, but I was focussed on my goal. “My Friendship with Yoga” thus took shape and was launched on the 10th January, 2017 at the New Delhi World Book Fair. Thanks to Lifi Publications for making this happen!How do you see writing, as a hobby or a passion?I find writing very therapeutic and it also makes me happy. It is passion that drives me to enter that lonely space, which I beautify with words, plot and characters to create a story.Is yoga a way of life or a way to exercise and meditateYoga and meditation are a way of life for a holistic and healthy lifestyle. It is not instant therapy or about perfecting the postures. It is much more than that.  One has to go through a process of learning – patiently and persistently; and observe the changes it brings about in oneself.Please tell us some more about your debut novel?“My Friendship with Yoga” is about my progression from learning under an instructor to achieving confidence in self-practice and sharing my varied experiences with readers. I have presented the complicated aspects of yoga in a lucid style with practical hints so as to cater book lovers of all age groups and skill levels. The book is divided into three parts:Narrative which combines the physical, psychological and spiritual aspects of yoga, wherein a selection of topics along with interesting anecdotes have been coveredThe 2nd Part has more than 80 postures with steps to attain these, guidelines, tips, techniques and benefits; keeping in mind yoga enthusiasts, beginners as well as those who have been practising yoga.The 3rd Part consists of the much desired weekly practice schedule written sequentially with clear instructions to enhance one’s practice.What has yoga done for you as a person?Yoga has helped me to deal with a given situation in a pragmatic and dispassionate manner. It has enabled me to let go of the past and negative emotions, be more positive and result-oriented and direct my energies towards my creative pursuit and other commitments. Yoga has certainly helped in making me acknowledge and appreciate the choices I have made so far, and offered me a healthier and more content lifestyle.What sort of research did you do to write this book?I have been reading books on yoga, but “My Friendship with Yoga,” is the outcome of my entire learning process, from the disciple of BKS Iyengar and instructors from the West. My effort was to present the complicated aspects of yoga in simple language that would appeal to readers of all age groups and skill levels. Yoga is not about perfection as different bodies react in a certain way to a certain posture. To that end, my thought process kept evolving during the entire course of my writing. I made several drafts until I was fully satisfied that I had done justice to my work. For each and every asana which has been illustrated in the book, I consciously performed them and wrote down the steps. Every single breath, every movement, position, the sequence had to be accurate.How did you come up with the title of the book “My Friendship with yoga”?It came straight from the heart; in fact I did not falter or ponder over the title. I began writing this book with its title in place. The title was a reminder to simplify yoga and it guided me in writing a user and reader friendly book, which has been appreciated by the reviewers and readers. Fortunately, my publishers were also happy with the title and did not suggest any changes.Besides writing, what else do you do in your free time?Besides writing and reading books; I practice yoga, support my publisher in the promotion of my book, review books for Muse India, handle professional commitment as Director of a company, travel and spend time with my family. I love to bake and cook, and feel delighted when the outcome exceeds my expectations Do you recall the first ever book/novel you read?I don’t recall the title of the first book, but I started off with the Enid Blyton series, followed by Agatha Christie.Were your parents reading enthusiasts who gave you a push to be a reader as a kid?My mum read a lot and I would accompany her to the local lending library. She was not pushy but I gradually picked up the habit and enjoyed those evening walks to the library after school, with my best friend. She will get nostalgic when she reads this!What are your top three favorite books of all time?It is hard to pick just 3, as I have so many favorites. Hmmm….. The Little Prince, Kite Runner, Reluctant Fundamentalist, Namesake…As a new author, what is your favorite part of the writing/ publishing process? Least favorite.My favorite part is the writing itself and working hand-in-glove with the publishers; the book launch being the icing on the cake. My least favorite part is to face rejections without knowing the reason for it, after waiting for months to hear from publishers.What is the main thing you want readers to take away from your book?To understand the pure essence and simplicity of yoga, without feeling intimidated or inadequateAs mentioned in the book, “Yoga is not about perfection. It is a very enjoyable bonding with our body and mind that teaches us to be resilient and patient.”I would like you to share something about yourself with the readers. Something that does not go in the about the author section something that is the real you?I dream a lot and wish that all my dreams came true, hahaha…And finally, A message for aspiring writers?“Rejections are a part of the whole process of being ultimately accepted and acknowledged, as a writer. Please do not give up, no matter what, and pursue your passion, despite the road blocks. Think of the book lovers and connect with them. Write for them and the passion will always be with you.”Thank you. It was really a privilege interviewing you.

 7 July 2018  

Book Title: The Author Author: Raj Siddhi  Format: Paper Back  Total Number of Pages:  183  Language: English  Publisher: Blue Rose Publishers  Publishing Date: 11th Apr 2018  ASIN: B07C42K9KB‘The Author’ begins with the story of a published book which has been maintaining its position of being the ‘best-selling book’ for last few years, but no reader knows who the writer of this is. A press conference is convened to disclose the fact of its author. In addition, it will disclose the fact why the readers have been put in the dark so far in connection with the identity of the author. The MD of the Publication House is a young lady who narrates a story before introducing the author of the novel. The story begins with Bangala Sahib Gurudwara at Connaught Place, Delhi. It is 14th February, the Valentine Day. In the meantime, a boy falls fainted at the gate of Sacred Heart Church. Nobody but two attendants of the church, Mrs. David, and her blind granddaughter, bring him to the hospital for treatment. While the boy’s treatment is on, it is discovered that he has tried to commit suicide. The boy’s name is Samar. Samar is an orphan and in an orphanage, he was brought up under the tutelage of Mother Marry. Spring is his fast friend with whose help he succeeds in winning the heart of a voracious reader of novels, Sufi. The Author is the story of love, dreams, sacrifice and an unquenched thirst. It deals with a journey to being a promising author for the fulfillment of other’s dreams.My TakeThe cover is full with grey hints us that there is something mysterious in the story.

પ્રશ્નઃ આપનો પ્રથમ પરિચય, અભ્યાસ અને હાલ આપ વ્યવસાયિક ધોરણે શું કરો છો ?નેહા રાવલ, જન્મ, અભ્યાસ અને લગ્ન – બધી જ મહત્વની ઘટનાઓ સુરતમાં. વાંચનનો શોખ ગળથૂથી માં થી જ મળ્યો.અભ્યાસ: -   B.Sc. with food science and nutrition, S.N.D.T University. 1998.- Post graduate diploma in creative writing, Veer Narmad South Gujarat                      University, surat.2017પ્રશ્નઃ શોખ એટલે તમારે મન શું ?શોખ એટલે તમારી જાત સાથે જે પ્રવૃત્તિ તમને આનંદમાં રાખે એ. એ દિશામાં કેટલો પણ સમય આપવાનો થાક ન લાગે અને કશુક સભર થયાનો સંતોષ થાય એ શોખ.પ્રશ્નઃ આપ કયા નામે લખવું પસંદ કરો છો? કોઈ ઉપનામ ખરું?મારા પોતાના જ નામે. હજુ સુધી ઉપનામની જરૂર નથી પડી.પ્રશ્નઃ લેખનકળામાં આપને સૌપ્રથમ ક્યારે પ્રેરણા થઈ? / એવી કઈ ઘટના બની કે આપ લખવા પ્રેરાયા ?કોઈક એવી ઘટના જે સમાજના લોકોને અસર કરે..પોઝીટીવ કે નેગેટીવ...એ વિષે લખવાની ઈચ્છા થાય અથવા કોઈ એવી ઘટના જે સંવેદનાના સુક્ષ્મ સ્તરે અલગ રીતે અનુભવાય. ત્યારે લખવાની ઈચ્છા થાય. હા, સમાજના સ્થાપિત નિયમો વિષે બળવો કરવા પણ લખવાનું ખુબ ગમે. એ સાથેજ ક્યારેક એવા પોતીકા અનુભવો મળે, જે જાતને ઝંઝોડી નાખે, ત્યારે લખવું આવશ્યક બની જાય. એમાં હળવા અનુભવો પણ આવી શકે જેમકે ઘરમાં અચાનક ફૂટી નીકળેલી કીડીઓ ની હારમાળા.પ્રશ્નઃ આપના પ્રકાશિત સાહિત્ય વિશે જણાવો.જણાવવા જેટલું ખાસ કશું પ્રકાશિત નથી.ફક્ત થોડી ટૂંકી વાર્તાઓ મમતામાં અને થોડા વેબપોર્ટલ – માતૃભારતી, પ્રતીલીપી અને સ્ટોરી મિરર પર.પ્રશ્નઃ આગામી કોઈ ઇચ્છીત સાહિત્ય સાહસ ખરું ?હા, એવી નવલકથા લખવી છે જે લોકોને રસપ્રદ ફિલ્મ તરીકે જોવી ગમે.પ્રશ્નઃ આપ કોઈ સાહિત્યિક સંકુલ / ગૃપ્સ સાથે જોડાયેલાં છો ખરાં ? કઈ રીતે એની સાથે પ્રવૃત્ત છો જણાવશો.ફેસબુક પર એક ગ્રુપ છે, વાર્તા રે વાર્તા નામનું. હું એમાં કાર્યરત છું. આ ગ્રુપના સુત્રધાર રાજુ પટેલ, જેઓ વાર્તા ના અભ્યાસુ અને ફિલ્મી પત્રકારત્વ અને ટેલીવિઝન લેખન ના અનુભવી છે તેઓ દર મહીને બેઠક યોજે છે. હાલ આ પ્રવૃત્તિમાં અમદાવાદના અને એની આસપાસના સભ્યો વધુ સક્રિય હોવાથી અમદાવાદમાં બેઠકો યોજાય છે. એ બેઠકમાં વાર્તા વિષે ચર્ચા થાય છે અને ત્યાર બાદ ફેસબુક પર હોમવર્ક મુકવામાં આવે છે, જે સભ્યો એ નિયત સમય મર્યાદામાં લખીને સુત્રધારને મોકલવાનું હોય છે. એ લેખન કાર્ય લખનારનું નામ ગોપિત રાખી ગ્રુપમાં પોસ્ટ થાય છે અને એના પર ગ્રુપના સભ્યો કોમેન્ટ ધ્વારા ચર્ચા અને ટીપ્પણીઓ કરે છે. આરીતે દરેકનું લેખન કાર્ય સભ્યો વાંચે અને સારાહે, વખોડે કે સલાહ સુચન આપે. એ લેખન બાદ આગામી બેઠકમાં કયા મુદાઓ વિષે ચર્ચા કરવી જરૂરી છે એ નક્કી કરી બેઠક યોજવામાં આવે. હું નિયમિત રીતે દર મહીને અપાતા અ હોમવર્ક કરતી રહી છું, જેનાથી મને મારી વાર્તાઓ વિષે અભિપ્રાય મળ્યા છે અને કોઈ ક્ષતિઓ હોય તો ગ્રુપના સભ્યોના સૂચનથી એ સુધારી શકી છું. આ ગ્રુપના હોમવર્ક માં લખાયેલી મારી વાર્તાઓ મમતામાં પ્રકાશિત થઇ છે અને કોઈ એક સ્પર્ધામાં નોંધપાત્ર કૃતિ માં પણ સ્થાન મેળવ્યું છે.પ્રશ્નઃ પ્રવર્તમાન સાહિત્ય વિશે આપનો શું અભિપ્રાય છે? / ઓનલાઈન પ્રકાશિત થતું સાહિત્ય અને કાગળમાં છપાતાં સાહિત્ય વચ્ચે આપ શું ફરક કરો છો? આપને કયું વધારે ગમે છે?સાહિત્ય! અત્યારે બહુધા લોકો સાહિત્યથી વિમુખ છે. એનું કારણ વચગાળાના સાહિત્યકારોએ સાહિત્યની જે ઘોર ખોદી છે એ છે. એ મહાન સાહિત્યકારોએ સાહિત્યના નામે એવું લખાણ આપ્યું છે કે  સામાન્ય જનતા માટે સાહિત્ય એટલે ‘ન સમજાય એવું’ – એ પરિભાષા બની ગઈ છે. જે સમજાય જ નહિ એમાં રસ કઈ રીતે પડે? એ સાથે જે વાર્તા સ્પર્ધાઓ યોજાય છે એમાં ક્યા તો ખુબ ઘટનાપ્રધાન કે પછી કે પછી તદ્દન લાગણીઓમાં પલળેલી વાર્તાઓને જ પ્રાધાન્ય મળે છે. અથવાતો એટલી સંકુલ વાર્તા હોય કે સરેરાશ વાચક સમજી ન શકે. કોઈ નવતર પ્રયોગ કે નવી કલ્પનાઓને આવકારતું દેખાતું નથી. સાહિત્યમાં સરળતા ને અવગણવા માં આવે છે. અને કદાચ એટલેજ લોકો સાહિત્યથી દુર થઇ રહ્યા છે.ઓનલાઈન જે પ્રકાશિત થાય છે, એમાંથી મેં જેટલું પણ વાંચ્યું છે એમાં સાહિત્ય નથી દેખાતું. જો કે આજકાલ છાપાઓ અને સામાન્ય સામયિકોમાં પણ જે વાર્તાઓ આવે છે એ તદ્દન હલકી કક્ષાની હોય છે. હા, ક્યારેક સો માં એક સારી હોય છે. સાહિત્યલક્ષી  સામયિકોમાં વાર્તાઓ સારી હોય છે. હું ટૂંકી વાર્તા લખું છું એટલે જાણ્યે અજાણ્યે એ વિષે જ વધુ નોંધ થાય છે. હા, નવલકથાઓ વિષે એટલું કહીશ, એમાં ભાષા, પરિવેશ અને પાત્રોએ સમય સાથે ખુબ ગતિ કરી છે, જે ટૂંકી વાર્તામાં ઓછું દેખાય છે.પ્રશ્નઃ વાચક વર્ગ સાથે આપ શું સંવાદ કરવા ઇચ્છશો ?વાંચો. સારું વાંચો. અને એટલું સારું વાંચો કે ખોટી રીતે અપાતા ઇનામોનો વિરોધ કરી શકો. ન સમજાતું લખાણ સાહિત્યના નામે ચઢી બેસે એનો વિરોધ કરી શકો. લેખકોને પ્રતિક્રિયા આપો, જેથી એમના લખાણ ની ક્યાં કેટલી અસર પહોંચે છે એ વિષે સભાના થાય. નબળું લખતા લેખકોને સોઈ ઝાટકીને કહો કે આ નબળું છે. પણ એ માટે નબળા- સબળાનો ભેદ સમજવા વાંચન વિસ્તારો.પ્રશ્નઃ કોઈ એક પ્રેરણાત્મક રચના કે વાક્ય કે સંદેશ લખી આપશો.Hard work wins, if talent does not work hard.પ્રશ્નઃ આપની વિગત જણાવવા વિનંતી. આપનું નામ સરનામું મોબાઈલ નંબર કોઈ પુસ્તક પ્રકાશિત થયા હોય તો તે વિષે અને સાહિત્ય માટે કોઈ કાર્ય કરી રહ્યા હોય તો તે વિષે જાણકારી આપશો.નેહા રાવલ.૧૬૬, દિવાળીબાગ સોસાયટી, ગેટ -૩,smc કોમ્યુનીટી હોલ ની સામે, ઋષભ ટાવર પાસે,રાંદેર રોડ,સુરત ૩૯૫૦૦૯.હાલમાં હું એક બંગાળી નવલકથા નો ગુજરાતી અનુવાદ કરી રહી છું

Adarsh "Bahu" course

Hypocrisy is like a wolf in sheep's clothing, it runs in our blood. On one side, we reinforce a perception to brag infront of others that how benignant we are, but the authenticity lies in our mind. Recently launched "Adarsh bahu course" fits best here, founded by so called Barkatullah University. People's reaction to it is outrageously appalling. On one hand, people vocalize women empowerment and on the ther hand contrarily support such a deplorable course.The people who were possessive about women empowerment 2-3 days back, are mocking at this course, and simply making memes and tagging their female friends while, some are calling it a nice initiative.It's motive is to keep families intact. Is it only a woman's responsibility to keep a family intact? Is there no responsibility of the man or his folks? Separating a man from his aged parents is cruelty and for that crime a hindu man can divorce his spouse. But what would be the punishment for terminating her career & burying her dreams to look after the family? This sacrifice doesn't matter at all to some shameless people. They want to make their daughter-in-law a typical conservative Indian Housewife who to them is a perfect daughter-in-law, no matter how imperfect their prince charming is. And a huge round of applause to BU, for launching such a horrendous course. This shows the degree of hypocrisy in our education system and how conservative it is! On one hand, it teaches us the rights of women and on the other hand it teaches women how to treat her in-laws.I believe that education is the qcore department in any country. This department should be insightful in imagination, sagacious in making judgment & most significantly adaptive to changes. Education can turn a wild creature into a sophisticated one, so we've got to choose wisely!

Artma Ventures: The World of Digital Art
 StoryMirror Feed  
 21 October 2018  
Art

StoryMirror interviewed Mr. Venkatesh from Artma Ventures and here is what he had to say about his venture:Q. Tell us about you and your background.I come from a tiny town in West Bengal called Kharagpur. Mine is a typical working middle-class family. I was good at Math and the obvious career choice for me was Engineer or so I thought. I worked for 3 years in a chemical company as an electrical engineer and absolutely detested it. In order to change fields, I chose MBA as an option. I went to IIM Kozhikode to study Marketing and Strategy which, I feel, have been 2 of the most enriching years of my life. Q. What is your greatest passion?I have always been passionate about creating things. If I have spare time, I’m either creating some form of art or learning a new technique to better my craft. It is fascinating to me that one can conjure up things and put them out in the world for others to enjoy, critique and ponder over. I’ve tried a lot of things from clay animation to video editing. My first love, however, is painting. I trained under Rabindra Bharathi University in West Bengal for almost a decade in fine arts. I have always dreamt of being an artist and that dream is slowly becoming a reality. I wish to bring smiles and happiness to people through my work and knowing that someone appreciates my work so much that they want to make it part of their life is a kind of fulfillment that I don’t get from anything else. I will continue to create and, in the process, try to bring joy to people around me. I have big plans but let’s keep it for some other time , for now, I just want to paint. Q. We understand you do digital art. How and why did you start painting digitally? Is it easier compared to drawing on the physical medium?In 2010 while I was pursuing engineering, I accidentally discovered the world of digital art. Sitting in my hostel dorm I watched countless videos on Youtube and was awestruck at the kind of work artists across the world were producing in the digital art space. I started drawing with a mouse which, of course, is ridiculously difficult and then researched to find the right tools. Being a college student, I couldn’t afford the equipment back then. A few months later I attended a cultural college fest and as expected there were painting competitions. I won three of them and knew exactly what to do with the cash prize that I earned. I got my first pen tablet immediately after and it is one of the best investments that I’ve made in my life. I used to paint quite often while I was in engineering and for a few months after that. Post that there was never enough time, I tried to keep up but with a regular job, it was hard to maintain consistency. So, I took the plunge and I must say I’m absolutely loving the process.Many people have a notion that digital art is a scam and that it is not as credible as painting on canvas. I have immense respect for anyone who works with the traditional medium as I started my training with that. While the fundamentals of art remain the same, the approach to mastering both is vastly different. In fact, the digital medium provides one a myriad of options and the freedom to experiment. The “undo” option is undoubtedly a lifesaver. However, that should not take away the effort that one puts into perfecting a piece. After all, everyone deserves a chance to correct their mistakes. Also, if it was that easy everyone would be doing it. I feel art is so much more than just replicating an image. It is about pulling the observer into the piece and moving them with the composition. Through their work, it is about showing the world what the artists themselves see. Q. How do you see this space evolving in the future?There is still very little awareness of the digital painting field in India. It is common for me to encounter questions like, “Do you use an app to convert the images?” People fail to realize that it is painting where each stroke is made in hand. However, it is changing and with the increasing reach of marketing media such as Youtube, it is easier for creators to showcase their process and create awareness about the field. New business models are evolving with the increasing adoption of digital media. I personally feel we are living in the most exciting time for content creators to make something of their creative capabilities. Digital art fits into a large range of fields from animation, merchandising, comic industry, movies, games, graphic design and the list goes on. The sky is the limit for someone who wants to pursue a career in digital art.Q. Could you tell us a little bit about the services that you offer? What is the process like?Sure. We make stylised digital portraits. It starts with selecting the right image for the artwork. We ask our patrons to share as many images as they can of the people they wish to capture in a painting. Once the image is finalised we ask them what their expectations are. The discussion could range from the color palette, the overall tone, the elements that they want to add to the piece. We try to make the paintings personal and have some meaning to the people they showcase. For instance, if it’s a baby’s painting and the baby loves dogs, we include them in the composition. If a couple loves to travel to beaches or has a favorite memory of a place, then we bring that out in the painting. This way the painting becomes far more than just a replica of the image and ends up being much larger than life.Actually, we are running a giveaway on our handle at the moment and it would be great if your users can participate in it. We are giving away one free portrait to the winner of the contest. I will share the link with you.https://www.instagram.com/p/Bo81JjQHXYz/ Q. What is your life's philosophy?“One must choose the problems that they want to solve”. Life at the end of the day is about solving problems from the time we wake up to go to bed. Even the job that one takes is solving the problem of earning a livelihood, living a luxurious life or creating a name for themselves. What if one enjoys solving a certain kind of problem, life then becomes a fun and happy ride. I’ve only come to terms with this in the past few months and that has been an eye-opener. For me, it is simply to keep getting better at creating content that touches people’s lives. Everything I do now revolve around that!Q. If you could give a message to all the 20-year olds of the world, what would it be?There is a very famous quote by Alan Watts, “What would you do if money were no object?” If I could go back to when I was 20 I would tell myself to just focus on my craft. To enjoy the ride while getting better at it every single day. I have spent years doing things which I didn’t love doing and I get petrified at the thought of wasting away another 30 or so years doing the same. To the 20-year-olds, I would just say do what makes you happy as cliché as it may sound. Find your calling and go after it. You will be fine.Please join Artma Ventures on their journey.

Q:Please give details about your initial education and forming years of life.A: I completed my Honors in Political Science from D.U. Then did mu B.Ed from IP University followed by Diploma in English Journalism from IIMC.Q: How did you get interested in literature? What inspired you to write?A: I was always in writing. Earlier I used to write scripts for a News Agency. Then I left my job, and now I write on social media platforms. Literature used to gave me an understanding of many situations that we face in our life. From there I also wanted to write something that will reach people and will stay with them forever.Q: What difficulties did you have to face with respect to literary work? A: I was out of touch for 3-4 years. Got married and was completely involved in my family only. But the passion was still alive. So getting back on track, writing well after years of staying completely away from pen became a little difficult. And today I struggle to reach the audience with my writings which I am still trying to improve and get back to those writing skills that I earlier had. There are so many creative writers that I feel there is a lot of scope for improvement in my writings.Q: What is your view about the present-day literary work? A: I think it has reached completely different heights. In this field people have become so good. Every piece of work that I get to read is in itself amazing. Today's literary work has made the world seem smaller. People get to read about cultures which are followed far far from them.Q: Do you think that the emergence of digital and social media has given a new opportunity to creative writers? A: Of course, it has given a new opportunity and a very good platform to people who really want to showcase their creativity. The opportunities today are unlimited for the talent to reach the people.Q: Please tell us something about your literary work. A: Starting with scripts and small articles, after taking a little break, I am more into short stories and poems now.

What inspired me from him was that being mechanical cum marine engineer he used to write moral punchlines and poetries over Facebook.

I appreciate that he came up putting them on Facebook, as I found this helpful to publish my own written posts over my shy nature.My interest in mythology and practice of Krishna Consciousness has made me to put up my first ever-Hindi version of poem over Krishna. I shared in on Facebook, and I got good comments from my friends. This pushed me more in writing, after some time, I found myself expressing my feelings mostly in form of some poetries. Whatever I write comes from a chapter of my life. What difficulties did you have to face with respect to literary work? Looking for the right word.What is your view about the present day literary work? People have immense talent, it inspires me how organized and in orderly manner they express their ideas in present day literary work.Do you think that the emergence of digital and social media has given a new opportunity to creative writers? Indeed.

Please give details about your initial education and forming years of life.My Education, in olden days completed up to basic 10th class in a Sultan Bazar Government High School, Hyderabad. Then Two-Year Pre-University Course from Badruka College of Commerce and Management at Hyderabad.  My Graduation in Commerce went in from Osmania University Affiliated College, Badruka College of Commerce & Management, Hyderabad.  I did Diploma in Business Management (DBM) course from a Private Institute. I also did Post Graduate  Diploma in Computer Applications (PGDCA) from Private Institution.  I did Typewriting Higher Grade and Stenography Higher Grades from then combined Andhra Pradesh State Board of Technical Education, Hyderabad.How did you get interested in literature? What inspired you to write? My family heredity has Literature blood. By inspiring elders Literary works right from my childhood, I happened to inculcate the habit of literary writings. I have also worked hard to learn good English and Telugu  languages for this purpose, though my mother tongue is Telugu. My Blood has got some Literary Blood Cells Therefore, I am a little-bit fluent in my writings, as I on and off keep my brain thinking always. More so, I don't like to keep idle myself. If I don't write and work each day, I don't get sleep, and I become erratic without work.What difficulties did you have to face with respect to literary work? In the initial days, when I was writing literary type of work in especially in English, Readers used to comment about the mistakes. I used to refer to English Dictionary for better words. I used to correct myself with patience. I used to write better words in a bad sentence. I have developed the habit of writing English in Flowery Language, so that people/readers should read my literary work i.e., stories, song lyrics, haiku poetry, articles, essays, quotes, so on and so forth. Now  I have become a little bit perfect, as I think myself, and started writing so many things pertaining to literature work.  I am not getting any negative comments for my work. Only I used to get appreciation letters, good comments, and good encouragement and praising notes. I thought I would still contribute more to this World, where Top Level Literary Writers/Authors should Appreciate my works, and my ambition is to have my name in the World Famous Authors/Writers List, as a good Literary Writer, My Ambitions are more and I am working accordingly on daily basis.What is your view about the present day literary work? Present day Literary work is not that of a good Literature work, as evidenced by many Writers works. The standard of English writing is slightly just average. I have observed that my of the Technical and Management Graduates are unable to contribute to literary work, because they are all, to say many  on software line. I observed  that many of the software people never in the habit of writing  articles/stories/songs/literary works, etc. This generation is such.  Only old people used to write good English, as I knew and observed well in my life.  More so, people and writers who are interested to write good literary work, need to get trained from senior mentors and continuously make a habit of writing, as a regular feature in their life. Then only, at once point of time such Literary work could be well recognized. Lest, there are chances of Literary Work getting drowned, due to not having good Writers in the coming generations.  As one knew well, that "Old Water Go, New Water Come".Do you think that the emergence of digital and social media has given a new opportunity to creative writers? Yes definitely. Digital and Social Media Tools/Devices play an important role to create more Writers and thereby more Readers emerge. Social Medial play an important role in shaping good Literary Writers.  Social Media gives good opportunity for Writers to present their Write-ups through few Blogs which facilitate Writers to present their Mind of Writing. Here, below I will give you a brief Article on Social Media:YOUNG AUDIENCE GRAB & CONQUER SOCIAL MEDIAEach minute, the technology is changing in rapid competitive market segment. Every business entrepreneur wants to have an edge over other competitors. Every businessman aspires for quick turn-over on their end products sales proceeds and wants to become a millionaire or a billionaire bypassing the Constitutional working systems, Acts, Rules, Regulations by violating norms & guidelines of the Ministry of Finance and  Reserve Bank of India (RBI), Foreign Exchange Regulation Act (FERA) and  Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA)Evolving marketing & advertising strategies are a prerequisite and essential in these competitive days in reaching out to customers and for public acquaintance is one part, while giving quick ads in latest tools and websites like LinkedIn, Face Book, Twitter, Wi-Fi and Internet through which messages, communications, ads, gist or gigs or contents of any subject matter of one’s personal, business or marketing could reach global people in quickest time, that too at no cost. But, whereas, reaching global people through News Papers, TV channels, hoarders, sign boards, pamphlets or through any other old fashioned system of ads looks to be little bit costly, slow and may not reach all the global people/institutions/companies.  It has been constantly and incessantly observed that increasing use of social media in personal, business and marketing fields is seen on a higher side. There is no doubt in this.The younger audience use social media technologies too much that too on daily basis, without which, the day will not pass.INDIA, Land of Opportunities: The younger generation and audience, now-a-days look for quickest communication, quick Return on Investment (ROI) and money rotation to meet their business and personal ends. The days are rolling-out with updated new technologies in the fields of Research & Development, Pharmacy, Agriculture, Software Development, Science & Technology, Sports & Culture, Tourism and Film Industry, Liquor Industry, Steel Industry, Printing Technology, Plastic Industry, Leather Industry, TV-Press-Media-Print, Grain Industry, Food Industry, Wood-Mattress & Furniture Industry, Glass & Crockery Industry, Cosmetic & Perfumes Industry, Prefabricated Building Material Industry.Face Book, LinkedIn, Twitter, Wi-Fi and Internet are the present days’ excellent media through which one can develop, personal, business, marketing & sales and for diversification and expansion of business plans and to establish good contacts with global people/customers/clients.These are equipped with wonderful media presently available for all the young audience, all at free of cost, for exchange of various aspects and for expression of ideas and business programs, which ultimately keep one busy in public eye. Moreover, global people view and use these latest technology tools in their daily life for publicity purposes. These are the present day TOOL TECHNOLOGY being used by billions of people all-over the world.YOUTH FOR NATIONAL INTEGRITYTODAY’S YOUTH – TOMORROW’S LEADERS:Today’s youth of the nation are all tech-savvy, broad-minded and rebellious with vast ideas, who could mobilize people of all religion, caste and creed as the youth of India play a crucial role in promoting communal harmony which will lead to socio-economic constitutional changes in maintaining peace in the country, as the youth are the future leaders of tomorrow.The youth’s education in engineering, medical, pharmacy, bio-technology, automobile engineering, R&D, management and in all fields of study, can mobilize people due to professional understanding in maintaining peace and communal harmony without interfering in issues like caste, creed, religion or ethnicity.Tech-savvy youth spreads the peace, love and communal harmony through social media tools like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, WhatsApp and blogs. Rapid changes took place through media postings then, after the conviction of culprits in December 2012 Delhi rape case issue. Nirbhaya Fund for survivors of gender violence started due to this case. So, the above tools play an important role in bringing about social harmony.Fine Arts play an important role in spreading the message of brotherhood and peace. Also, young authors, writers, poets and artists come together to enlighten people of India about the secularism in Indian Constitution.One can understand the culture at major cities like Mumbai and Delhi, that the youth cares for personal growth based on their talents rather than they do about caste or religion.Youth having good jobs by virtue of their talent, can bring changes on people around them to maintain peace and harmony in the society without any negative mind set on caste, creed or religion.The government has to work with the youth to bring about unity in diversity for the future of nation.Please tell us something about your literary work. : I am in the habit of writing a good number of stories, song lyrics, haiku poetry, articles, essays, quotes and other content material needed by various people/institutions for so many ways.

Then I wrote one good article, 'SICKNESS IN PUBLIC ENTERPRISES, CAUSES AND CURES", Submitted to the Public Enterprises Board, New Delhi, during l986-87.How many ways literature can contribute to society in future? Literary works can contribute to the Society in future in countless ways. There is no end to literary work.  The future of the World in Particular India, has got lot of Literary Writers and their work would definitely put India Map in the Top of the World in Literary Writings. It will happen in the coming generations.  Now, the world's good literary work is known as British Literature.  Indians have good knowledge in literary works. But, as Indians, we have learnt many of the Literature from British Literature. British Literature is a standard literature and its famous World Wide., as per my knowledge.Where do you see yourself after 5 years in the literary world?.My Literary work can go outdated. New Literary works by young blood and new generations would lead the good literature work. It is quite possible that in the next 5 years, the literary world in India, would compete with British Literary work.What ways would you suggest to build a community for poets?Community of Poets should be there in each State, and in each Website, including in Social Media.  Each Story Websites in India should have one POETS BLOG, to inter-act with Poets in India especially, directly.  This will be a good proposal. Blogs should have, Poets for Stories, Poets for Song Lyrics, Poets for Writers, Poets for Article Writers etc., so on and so forth.What message would you like to give to aspiring new writers? My message to aspiring Writers are that, Go on writing. put good proper words, get good meaning, get good flower language. To write good English or Telugu or for that matter in any language of proficiency they are.  Inculcate the habit of writing.  Present the sentences and language in a good way, so that  Readers should hail the writer.How was your experience of writing on StoryMirror?:  StoryMirror is a good platform for all Writers, beginners, children, youngsters, youth, elders and aged Writers. Story Mirror works as good Mediators to Writers and Readers through the august Story Mirror. and it encourages all Writers in their sphere of work in all fields, especially in literature work.Would you like to say something about StoryMirror? Story Mirror should have a tie-up, MoU, Agreement, Contract with Film Field and Literary Associations Worldwide, so that the best writings  should be recognized by various fields/associations.  This gives a good motivation and a good recognition to Writers on their Literary Work.  Story Mirror also to diversify in other languages including Telugu, so that Story Mirror can spread to World Telugu People, apart from others Language Speaking People. Story Mirror has to work dashingly and gate-dash in various World Associations Organized contests, for the purpose of Indian Writers including Children, and all contests should be kept open to all people without any age bar.  Story Mirror also to motivate Writers, by giving good gifts and presentations, as is being given by various Story Websites around the World.  This will keep the image of Story Mirror in the World Circles.Here is the link to read my content https://storymirror.com/profile/7lljf2p2/mantri-pragada-markandeyulu/stories

Under Cherry-Trees

Under cherry-treessoup, the salad,fish and all . . .Seasoned with petalsVariety of food is like mind and petals represents consciousness.Remember well that you don't have one mind; you have multi-minds.Mind is a flux: river like, flowing, changing. Consciousness is eternal, one. It is not different in the morning and different in the evening. It is not different when you are born and different when you die. It is one and the same, eternal. Mind is a flux. A child has a childish mind, an old man has an old mind; but a child or an old man have the same consciousness, which is neither childish nor old. It cannot be.Mind moves in time and consciousness lives in timelessness. They are not one. But we are identified with the mind. We go on saying, insisting, 'My mind. I think this way. This is my thought. This is my ideology.' Because of this identification with the mind, you miss that which you really are.Dissolve these links with the mind. Remember that your minds are not your own. They have been given to you by others: your parents, your society, your university. They have been given to you. Throw them away. Remain with the simple consciousness that you are ¯ pure consciousness, innocent. This is how one moves from the mind to meditation. This is how one moves away from society, from the without to the within. This is how one moves from the man-made world, the maya, to the universal truth, the existence.

Currently am pursuing my bachelor's in English language and literature from Adamas University.Q: How did you get interested in literature? What inspired you to write?  A: As a child I used love listening to Ramayana and Mahabharata, both of which my mother used to recite. Then it was Aesop's Fables and Panchatantra which further brightened my world of imagination. And finally, Khaled Hosseini made me delve deep into literature.I never really knew I could compose stories until my the then Creative writing professor- Shrabani Ma'am announced “... chocolate as a reward for the first three best creative works.” Better to say Chocolate acted as a muse and inspired me to use pen instead of sword, to strikeQ: What difficulties did you have to face with respect to literary work? A: Sometimes a few Literary works did turn out to be a bit less interesting.Q: What is your view about the present-day literary work? A: I think it’s more straightforward than the previous works.Q: Do you think that the emergence of digital and social media has given a new opportunity to creative writers? A: Absolutely, the emergence of digital and social media has made it easier for the writers who cant really afford the expenses of publishing their works.

Please give details about your initial education and forming years of life.I was raised in Patna for the first eight years of my life, after which my family moved to Kolkata. I completed my schooling from Garden High School, Kolkata, and later studied English Literature at Lady Brabourne College under Calcutta University. Finally, I received a Postgraduate Diploma in Journalism from the Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC). Most of my childhood memories consist of my grandfather reading me stories, which sowed the first seeds of my obsession with storytelling and all things literary.How did you get interested in literature? What inspired you to write? Everything that happened in my life served as inspiration at one point or another, as well as the stories of other people whom I met or read about. I have also always been inspired by movies and TV shows, and routinely get obsessed with characters, whom I then proceed to write about and reinterpret in my own stories and poems.I guess my interest in literature was first born partly because of my grandfather, who would read stories to me every afternoon before we took a nap. That made me curious about storytelling, because I wanted to learn more about the characters and the world, even after the story was over. It was a mixed blessing, really, because I spent most of my student life hiding novels under my textbooks and almost flunking several exams as a consequence.What difficulties did you have to face with respect to literary work? Anything worth doing is hard to do, you know? The more you care about what you're doing, the more difficult it is, because you worry about the smallest mistakes and want the final product to be perfect. You also worry about what other people will think, whether or not reviewers and readers would like it, whether something might be misinterpreted, etc. But that's a good thing, really, because it wouldn't matter so much if you didn't love the work. The fact that it's difficult only proves that you're constantly trying to get better. When it stops being a challenge, that's when you need to start worrying.What is your view about the present day literary work? I think we're living in one of the best times in the history of humanity, in terms of literature, or artistic work of any kind. The variety and scope of opportunities that modern writers have is absolutely unprecedented. Earlier, in order to find an audience, you had to find a publisher who'd agree to invest in you, you had to then write in a way that would appeal to the largest section of people possible, to ensure that your publisher made a profit. Or you had to be insanely rich in order to opt for vanity publication, which was very expensive.Now, in various corners of the Internet, you can find all types of literary work – from fanfiction to poetry, novels to flash fiction, there is a place for everything. And all you need to access it is a smartphone and a data plan. And for the most part, you don't really have to worry about being censored or redacted. Writers have never been more free to experiment, try out new things, and have their voice be heard by people around the world.Do you think that the emergence of digital and social media has given a new opportunity to creative writers? Absolutely. I think that the Internet is the best invention since the printing press for writers and creatives in general.Please tell us something about your literary work. I write across mediums and genres. So far, I've written two and a half novels, more than fifty poems, numerous articles, four short stories, and two fanfiction stories. Really, it depends on the type of emotion I'm trying to convey at that point. Almost everything I've ever written can be found on my blog. Well, apart from the novels. Those can be found on Amazon and also on Wattpad.What was your first literary work and how was it published? Well, I suppose my first officially published work was my novel, The Classroom Effect. It was published via Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing program around 2015.How many ways literature can contribute to society in future? In the same way that it has contributed in the past, by keeping a record of the times so that future generations can learn from our mistakes, and the present generation can reflect on the realities of the world while at the same time being entertained.Where do you see yourself after 5 years in the literary world? Writing more stories, spinning better yarns? I don't know, really. As long as I can keep writing things that interest and excite me, I'd be happy!What ways would you suggest to build a community for poets? The best way for creative people to build communities, I think, is by freely sharing their works with those who might enjoy them. You can't connect with people if they don't know you exist. And sharing has never been as easy as it is now, with the Internet. So I think poets and writers in general should take advantage of this opportunity, and share as widely and as freely as possible.What message would you like to give to aspiring new writers? Well, I'm pretty new at this myself, and I do aspire. So I'm still in the process of figuring it all out myself. If there's one thing that I have learned, though, it's that in order to do any creative work, you absolutely HAVE to give yourself the freedom to fail. You have to allow yourself to do your absolute worst work, because that's the only way to learn and get better. There's really no way around being a novice. You can't reach grade 3 without going through grades 1 and 2. If you try for perfection from the very beginning (which is what I did initially) you'll just keep disappointing yourself and never get anything done. The desire for perfection is the birthplace of writer's block.How was your experience of writing on Storymirror? It has been wonderful so far! I've read some fantastic poetry on this site and had a lot of fun sharing my own work with this lovely community!Would you like to say something about Storymirror? I think Storymirror is a fantastic platform for young writers and poets to share their work and find a community of other creative individuals. I have been on many online writing forums and websites, but this is the first time I have come across such a platform based primarily around Indian writing. We have long needed such a platform, and therefore, I think it's an amazing initiative that all budding Indian writers and literature lovers should participate in wholeheartedly!Here is the link to read my content https://storymirror.com/profile/vkzhvfka/nupur-chowdhury/poems

We have seen a lot of great Writers & their work, contribution. I wanted to start writing but had zero idea and wasn't confident enough. It all started when I was depressed over again, not knowing what to do.. browsed through a number of blogs, website & apps for writing. Found a nice platform “Mirakee”, just started writing slowly with whatever thoughts came to my mind.Q: What is your view about the present-day literary work? A: I feel the ancient work was full of meaning. Whatever you touch - from poems, stories, scriptures etc is filled with depth & message. One of many to mention - poems written by the eminent & finest poet of 19th century, Robert Frost. Nowadays, literature is good but modernized & uses more complex words whilst the message is lost inside it. Can't conclude since the above opinion is based on few readings. I guess A reader is the best critic to comment on this.Q: Do you think that the emergence of digital and social media has given a new opportunity to creative writers? A: Yes, digital media in this generation has given opportunities for everyone interested in writing but we must create a new platform to encourage young writers and take literary work to another level like other forms of art.Q: Please tell us something about your literary work. A: Most of what I write revolves around the thoughts that arise in mind due to few situations and things happening around, to the lessons learnt from life experiences till date. Subject plays a major role. that's how most of the poems are born & takes life. I don't know many complicated words to be used & also various forms of poems. My basic idea of writing is that it should at least be useful to those who read & must convey good message or meaning.Q: What was your first literary work and how was it published? A: I'm just a soul interested in literature and writing has given me lot of peace and happiness. I don't have my literary work published yet. The first piece of story/poem I wrote was “One Winter Morning” (have submitted in StoryMirror & waiting for content approval). Still a learner. Long way to go.Q: How many ways literature can contribute to society in future? A: Literature has the ability to awaken minds of lot of people in many ways. It is the base or evidence to history. Ancient literature, stories, drama, poetries, scientific work/research have the potential to impact the future & generations to come.Q: Where do you see yourself after 5 years in the literary world? A: As stated earlier, I'm still a learner in this vast ocean of literature. It's a dream to see ourselves better & wise while we continue our journey. Let's see… until then I'll keep writing & improving but will never stop what's started.Q: What ways would you suggest to build a community for poets? A: We must have mentors and fellow writers to correct us and provide inputs. It will surely impact in order to improve & also serves as encouragement which will give us new hope and interest to write more.Q: What message would you like to give to aspiring new writers? A: Keep learning and just start writing. We never know how far it will take us or we can go but the first step to start the journey is within our hands. When I, who thought that I wouldn't be able to do anything can write. Then anybody can write. You have the potential, will power & strength within you. Never let it die. Keep watering it without any expectations.Q: How was your experience of writing on StoryMirror? A: Initially it was difficult, as I was used to only one writing platform/app. It's been so good so far. *NICE , to sum up.Q: Would you like to say something about StoryMirror? A: Excellent platform and interactive (in terms of communication, support, competitions & encouraging writers). I would like to Thank, Shrestha for introducing me to StoryMirror & let me participate in “Be a poem” competition.

Please give details about your initial education and forming years of life.I graduated a semester early from Beckman Catholic High School and started taking college courses early on. Currently, I attend Northeast Iowa Community College. Given my hectic life, at the moment I am only enrolled in online courses. Ever-so-slowly, I’m working towards my Associate of Arts degree before I transfer to a four-year university to pursue a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. How did you get interested in literature? What inspired you to write?  I have always had a fondness for literature—there’s just something immensely intriguing about finding a great book and escaping into the literary world it provides. I’m always adding new books to my kindle. As for writing, I discovered early on in my childhood that I had a talent and interest in poetry. More often than not, I used poetry writing as a therapeutic tool and it proved to be a helpful means of coping with the struggles of my daily life. It still is. What difficulties did you have to face with respect to literary work? The difficulties that had the most impact in relation to my writing would probably be writer’s block and finding FREE ways to get my work put out there and/or published.What is your view about the present-day literary work? In regard to poetry specifically, the majority of my favorite writers are modern-day and from this generation. I find that I tend to gravitate towards writing styles similar to my own. I think that there has been a recent increase in writing that has a positive subject matter, which I find refreshing considering most of my own work tends to be on the negative side of life. Do you think that the emergence of digital and social media has given a new opportunity to creative writers? I definitely believe that social media and technology both have made a HUGE difference in the amount of opportunities available for writers. For me, personally, the digital world has skyrocketed my writing and certainly improved it.Please tell us something about your literary work. My work is almost solely poetry, and that’s what I’ve chosen to dedicate my time spent writing to. Every single piece has some sort of deeply personal connection to me or my life and, in numerous cases, my past. I haven’t had the most sunshine-y life, but in the last five years things have taken a turn for the better in the best ways. I think this positive turn for me is becoming visible in some of my writing. What was your first literary work and how was it published?  My first real piece of writing that I put out there was a cheesy Love poem that I wrote around age twelve specifically for a contest hosted by what previously was Poetry.com. It’s called Definition of Love, and through the website at the time, it was published into an anthology entitled Collected Whispers. I was quite proud then, but reading it now, I almost want to blush at how obvious my youth was. How many ways literature can contribute to society in future?I think that, in the future—as well as now, even—literature and writing and poetry will (hopefully) open people’s eyes to what the world was/is like today and explore the endless possibilities of what the world COULD be.Where do you see yourself after 5 years in the literary world?In five years, the hopes I have in regard to my writing all revolve around the simple goal of being recognized and successfully putting myself out there. It’s been a struggle finding ways to do that that won’t affect me financially. What ways would you suggest to build a community for poets?I think that many positive strides have been made to do exactly this, and many more are already in the process. I do wish that there was a singular poetry community online that provided ways for writers to share their poetry with others, receive feedback, build a collection of their poetry, AND enter FREE contests/calls for submissions. I feel like, the ways things are right now, poets have to bounce around from site to site or place to place to accomplish all of those things.What message would you like to give to aspiring new writers? The best advice I could ever give isn’t my own advice at all, but rather the words of Ernest Hemingway. Ernest Hemingway once said, “Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.”How was your experience of writing on StoryMirror? To be completely honest, I have only ever been on StoryMirror to enter a contest. When I got the email requesting an author interview, I was so pleased because I feel like no other writing community appears to care about or get involved with its members/writers. Instantly, I wanted to be a more active part of StoryMirror, so I’d say my experience was wonderful.Here is the link to read my content https://storymirror.com/profile/drmr5sia/morgan-tomas-klostermann/poems

Please give details about your initial education and forming years of life.I had completed my High School from Our Own High School, Al Warqa', Dubai, I am a Bachelor of Business Administration graduate from Heriot-Watt University, Dubai and a Master of Business Administration graduate majoring in Finance from Manipal University, Dubai.How did you get interested in literature? What inspired you to write?  When I first wrote a poem, I was in grade 10, say before the CBSE board exams started off. There isn't exactly a how I got interested in literature because back then and even now music has been my inspiration, and how various genres bring out what you feel from within was one of the keys that triggered me into writing. It helped me dive deep into my imagination and what I felt inside. What difficulties did you have to face with respect to literary work? The difficulties while writing can be just one or many things combined to be honest. Like one of the difficulties I faced was loss of words, there will be times where you are trying to describe a certain thing or a feeling and you know how the lines should be formed but you are not getting that word that can complete it, and then you may be like ok this is not working and you strike off the line you wrote and then start from scratch to use a similar word or phrase that expresses the same.Another difficulty that I have faced and I guess the other writers too would agree on this is continuity or simply called a flow. When we are in a flow of writing not just poetry, fictions or anything for that matter, we can generate ideas within a few minutes or less depending on how often we write or how deep our imagination goes. I did have difficulty in getting back my flow after I was done with school and it took me around 2 years to get back in writing and I thought I was back but then again with various things happening around you, it does become difficult to carry on. After a pretty much on and off in between, I got my flow back again after my MBA. Yes, we all struggle at one point or the other but the only important thing other than imagination, creativity is the flow. The stronger your flow, the more confident you become and the more you can dive into your imagination bringing out the best in you.What is your view about the present-day literary work? Literature has been evolving over the years, now people not only write about what they imagine or feel, but they also write on current issues too.There are people who have come out speaking about out about their difficulties, abusive relationships, etc that have in turn encouraged others to come out and speak. Words always had the power to inspire people, bring people together in times of oppression, many singers/songwriters have done it, like Bob Marley and many more, whose words had inspired people, brought peace around.Now, Literature has got a new platform that is digital media, where millions can connect and express what they feel, what they may have gone through and help each other out in the process.Do you think that the emergence of digital and social media has given a new opportunity to creative writers? Definitely, Digital and Social Media has now become a hub of new and emerging writers, it has given them the opportunity to showcase their talent in writing, given them the opportunity to learn from other writers whether new or experienced, this has also given the opportunity to communicate and collaborate with each other regardless of their geographical boundaries and linguistic barriers.Instagram is one of the major tools for this has encouraged millions in expressing what their passion is, what they are interested in and continue to do follow their path, to not just gain followers but also to inspire more and more to do the same.Please tell us something about your literary work. I am a poet, and I write poetry in English and Hindi / Urdu, I write about love, motivation, relationships, and many more. I had started writing for myself when I was in 10th and I used to keep a book separately just for my work back then. As years passed by, you gain more experience as to what life gives you in your journey and I guess that had helped evolve from just writing about how I felt by just looking at someone's face to how you feel in certain situations which may be so realistic yet not so easy to express to people around you.      I do have a WordPress blog that I have been maintaining for a few years now           WordPress Blog: https://shoumeets.wordpress.com/I also have a Facebook and Instagram page where I keep posting my work and try to reach out to as many people as possible.      Facebook Page: https://facebook.com/shoumeet.saha.poetryInstagram Page: https://www.instagram.com/shoumeet.saha.poetry/What was your first literary work and how was it published? My first literary work was a Hindi poem "Haseen" back in 2012. This was the first one to make to my WordPress blog which I had created.How many ways literature can contribute to society in future?Literature has played a very important role in expression, expression of our thought, expression of our feelings and expression of our opinions.Today, literature has become the power to heal someone from depression, motivate and inspire people from day to day, comfort those suffering from various difficulties and pain and letting them know that they are not alone. Literature has always and will be able to contribute its part of healing, inspiration, and love in the future, which now is really essential for our existence and survival in this world.Where do you see yourself after 5 years in the literary world?In the literary world, a person can be inspired anytime by anyone and anywhere and in this world, learning how to dive deeper into our imagination is always a constant. I would say I am taking it day by day to learn more, to experience more and find ways to inspire myself to write more.What ways would you suggest to build a community for poets?To build a community for poets, I would say we need to encourage them to express what they feel from day to day. We may also suggest a word or phrase that they may be able to write upon and let them bring out the best of their work through the use of those words and phrases.We can also give them the opportunity to collaborate among themselves, this, in turn, will help them learn from each other's experiences and also help in the different competitions that they may participate in.What message would you like to give to aspiring new writers? My message to the aspiring writers is to learn more, learn from people's experience, your own experiences, learn how to express your feelings better and learn to take control of your imagination, the deeper you go, the more you will be surprised as to how many ways you can write about something.Another message is that life will have its ups and downs, but never be discouraged by it, never give up on what you really love and never lose your flow in writing.How was your experience of writing on StoryMirror?  StoryMirror has been a great platform to showcase my work and a lot of competitions to participate in, some of which I would like to take on soon.Here is the link to read my content https://storymirror.com/profile/zlnwbvgb/shoumeet-saha/poems

India is the country that has given birth to a variety of arts and cultures. The prospects of studying humanities have been increasing by the day.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 2.30
 Dhwani Shah  
 27 July 2019  

Maturity - In Gita Verse 2.30 O descendant of Bharata, he who dwells in the body can never be slain. Therefore you need not grieve for any living being.Krishna says that the aliveness of the body, which is your soul is not doing any violent act. So don’t think of the body which is perishable.What rightnow Arjuna is thinking is only in terms of objective world, and Krishna is reminding him to come back with the information to subjective world.Krishna is asking him to transform the objective world to subjective world. Objective world is always in the crude form, unless we purify and transform we cannot grow in consciousness. We cannot see the truth. We will be always immature.Maturity means the understanding to decide for oneself, the understanding to be decisive on your own. To stand on your own feet — that’s what maturity is. But it rarely happens, because parents spoil almost every child, more or less. And then there is the school and the college and the university — they are all ready to spoil you. It is very rare that somebody becomes mature.The society is not happy with mature people. Mature people are dangerous people, because a mature person lives according to his own being. He goes on doing his own thing — he does not bother what people say, what their opinion is. He does not hanker for respectability, for prestige; he does not bother for honour. He lives his own life — he lives it at any cost. He is ready to sacrifice everything, but he is never ready to sacrifice his freedom.Society is afraid of these people; society wants everybody to remain childish. Everybody should be kept at an age somewhere between seven and fourteen — that’s where people are.In the First World War, for the first time, psychologists became aware of this strange phenomenon. For the first time on a large scale, in the army, people’s mental ages were searched for. And it was a strange discovery: the army people had the average mental age of twelve. Your body may be fifty, your mind remains somewhere below fourteen.Before fourteen you are repressed — because after fourteen repression becomes difficult. By the time a child is fourteen, if he has not been repressed then there is no possibility to repress him ever — because once he becomes a sexual being, he becomes powerful. Before fourteen he is weak, soft, feminine. Before fourteen you can put anything into his mind — he is suggestible, you can hypnotize him. You can tell him everything that you want, and he will listen to it, he will believe in it.After fourteen, logic arises, doubt arises. After fourteen, sexuality arises; with sexuality he becomes independent. Now he himself is able to become a father, now she herself is able to become a mother. So nature, biology, makes a person independent from parents at the age fourteen.So the greatest work for a man who really wants to become free, who really wants to become conscious, who really wants to become de-hypnotized — who wants to have no limitations of any kind, who wants to flow in a total existence — is that he needs to drop many things from the inside. When Buddha says, you have to kill your mother and father, that doesn’t mean that you have to go and actually kill your father and mother — but the father and mother that you are carrying within you, the idea.You will see maturity coming very soon — and without maturity life is not worth anything. Because all that is beautiful happens only in a mature mind, all that is great happens only in a mature mind. To be a grown-up is a blessing. But people simply grow up — they never become grown-ups. In age they go on growing, but in consciousness they go on shrinking. Their consciousness remains in the foetus; it has not come out of the egg, it is not yet born. Only your body is born — you are yet unborn.Take your life into your own hands: it is YOUR life. You are not here to fulfill anybody else’s expectations. Don’t live your mother’s life and don’t live your father’s life, live your life. And when you start living your life, you are living God’s life.Krishna says to Arjuna to live the Life, which is gift of universe, your subjectivity. So that you can accomplish your assignment of the universe, Fight WIthout Enmity.
